Default Which foods>>>> would you say increase water weight?

I was curious if anyone knows which foods might add water to the body? I know high sodium/msg helps retain it..anyone have knowledge on what foods might
cause the dreaded 'water gains'.

~I am dealing w/ a lot right now, I can feel it too. I'm pushing water to flush it off. lol

I think that is so individual and dependent on people's senstivities.

If I eat sugar, it will be a 3 pound gain on the scale without fail the next day.

If I eat homemade salsa - I will gain a pound or two.

If I eat sauerkraut, I will gaine a pound.

And I do not eat a low sodium meal. I don't eat processed foods, so my sodium isn't sky high from that, but I do add salt to my foods when cooking, but tend to undersalt and will then salt my food at the table. So, these are things taht get me even though I already eat salt.

Foods that traditionally cause water retention are:
Dairy. If you normally eat dairy, you may or may not notice this.
Higher carb foods (hydrate means hold onto water so...). If you normally eat more carbs, you may or may not notice this.

and if you eat low carb, its not water retention but glucogen that is in your cells are depleted, when you eat a higher carb meal, that glucogen is added back causing a weight gain although it wouldn't cause any bloating that you might get from water retention.

Water retention isn't necessarily a bad thing considering our bodies are 70%+ water but it just may cause you alarm as you see the scale fluctuate but that is normal.

I try not to eat extra sodium (processed foods especially), I even run low in bp. I did allow fresh tuna 3x this week and have been using those single svg creamers (30cals), which I don't eat or drink much dairy at all, maybe these things packed water on me. I just feel swollen even though my scale is [email protected] the lowest so far.

ThaNks ladies for your replies.
